About “Invest From the Ground Up”
When you stop and think about it, what makes a neighborhood great? Can you imagine a great neighborhood without trees? It’s a simple truth that great neighborhoods have character, rooted in the trees, parks and green spaces that help make the place we live feel like home.
Unfortunately, when decisions are being made about what’s best for our community to thrive, the true value provided by these basic resources—and the return on the investment we make in them—is often overlooked.
That’s why we started the “Invest From the Ground Up” campaign—because Californians deserve to know that investing in our trees, parks and green spaces not only helps create great neighborhoods, but gives us back much more than we put in.
The best solutions don’t have to be new, complicated or expensive. Once people see what can grow when we simply invest from the ground up, we can begin making decisions that help our communities thrive, our local businesses flourish and the place we live feel even more like home.
We’re partnering with homeowners, business owners, local governments and agencies, utilities, organizations and community leaders in cities across California to bring this campaign to a neighborhood near you. Stay tuned to our homepage to get regular updates and find out where we’re headed next!
About California Urban Forests Council
“Invest From the Ground Up” is a project of the California Urban Forests Council. At the Council we work to make California’s communities cleaner, healthier and more prosperous by supporting urban forestry (the care and management of trees within our communities). As the nation’s oldest urban forest council, we have seen the many ways in which urban forestry has improved communities across the state and over the decades.
In addition to running the “Invest From the Ground Up” campaign, which includes our new community tree planting program, we coordinate educational workshops, host an annual conference, help urban forest managers develop management plans, and support seven regional councils.
